Re: North Vancouver

The Tempe Glen Dr trees are 'Shirofugen'. The Tempe Knoll Dr trees are a very attractive planting of 'Amanogawa'.

Re: North Vancouver

Very large 'Ichiyo' 348 East 17th Street near Ridgeway North Vancouver

I literally just put away my Ornamental Cherries in Vancouver guide on the bookshelf today as I thought I'd seen all the varieties blooming on the North Shore this year... until I drove past this gorgeous very large tree!

It is in full bloom earlier than the 'Shirofugen' locally and the petals are almost 5 cm in diameter.

The green leaves accent the soft pink petals which I can only describe as looking like the colour of swirling pink cotton-candy - perhaps not scientific or botanical but that is what comes to mind.

Added location to map.

Re: North Vancouver

40 or more 'Kanzan' trees in bloom in the 100 block West 8th Street near the Anglican church and around the corner onto 13th Street. Popular with all ages today :)

Re: North Vancouver

8 well cared for 'Shirofugen' trees on the SW corner of West 8th Street at Chesterfield. They are properly spaced apart and planted with a wide enough area around the trunks so that the lawn mower doesn't get close enough to damage the base of the trees - they seem very health and happy! Added to map.

Re: North Vancouver

10 'Kanzan' trees brighten up the Save-On Foods parking lot Park and Tilford Shopping Centre. I like finding cherry trees in parking lots and gas stations - it gives me an opportunity to drink in some beauty in a place I least expect to find it!

Re: North Vancouver

3 dozen or so 'Kanzan' trees line the median on Mt. Seymour Parkway between Riverside Drive and Browning Place. A nice splash of pink colour for commuters in an area dominated by tall evergreens. Added location to map

Re: North Vancouver

3 large 'Shirofugen' 130 West 5th Street just west of Lonsdale. This building was built in the 1960's so perhaps these trees are that old as well. Added location to map.

Re: North Vancouver

Jack Loucks Court - 100 block W 1st - 2 'Shogetsu' I added quite a few photos as the Cherry books says it is an uncommon variety!

Well the last 2 of the 10 cherry trees are in bloom on this walkway - they look like 'Shogetsu'. (See also pictures in this thread post 14 - 6 'Akebono' and post 37 for 2 'Shirotae' at this location).

First set of these 'Shogetsu' photos were taken April 12 - green leaves emerged before buds, buds squarish and emerged pink. 2nd set of photos taken today, double white petals look more serrated than rounded and are fringed pointing downward with extra long stems.

Good work by Durante Krueck landscape architects to plant 3 cherry types that bloom in succession on this walkway, the area could have ended up with allot more concrete and a lot less beauty.

I can't see the photo all that well on my laptop - am I imagining sepals curled back and uneven scalloping on the leaf edges? Looks like avium, sweet cherry. Probably used to be a 'Kanzan'.

Re: North Vancouver

175 East 2nd Street - on St Georges Ave side of building

A trio of trees in bloom - Shirotae in late bloom on the left, Kanzan in the middle, and Ukon on the right. You can see the white vs. yellow blossom colour when viewing these trees side by side.

Have added Shirotae and Ukon locations to the map individually.

Re: North Vancouver

175 East 2nd Street (corner of East 2nd at St Georges)

Almost a dozen cherry trees planted outside Manyo Restaurant.

This first bunch out front of the restaurant are 6-8 Kanzan pink double blossom along with 1 white tree which might even be a plum.

The first photo attached show the pink Kanzan blossoms with one branch of white blossoms growing on the tree which looks like this branch has been cross-pollinated from the white tree located adjacent?

The next 2 photos show the white tree which is the same size as the Kanzan - any ideas as to cultivar of the white tree?

Added Kanzan location to map.

Re: North Vancouver

I'm sorry that nothing in this posting is in bloom right now - either finished or coming.

The first trees I passed on the way to the Silk Purse Gallery to see the Textile Translation of Cherry Blossoms show were these two 'Shirofugen'. What interested me here was that the tree on the left, closer to Marine Dr, has avium growth from high on the trunk, but the tree on the right has 'Shirofugen' growth from the trunk, and avium growth from the ground. These two trees were surely planted at the same time, but had been grafted differently.

This very nice planting of eight 'Shirofugen' is at a little park area at 14th and Argyle. It should be in bloom next week. There's also an area of newer 'Akebono' in this park.

Not far from here, just across the tracks on 14th at Bellevue, are 'Kanzan' on the west side of the street, and a new double row of 'Akebono', then a very new double row of 'Shirofugen'. The 'Shirofugen' are planted less than 3M apart, which seems very close. I can see doing that if then they'll remove alternate ones to some other location, but I'm guessing they'll eventually just prune them so they look strange.

The 'Kanzan' are just about ready to open. These are at the bus stop on Marine at 14th and on Bellevue at 13th.

On a Birch Bark Cherry trunk. Douglas Justice told us that means there are two graftings - the one at the ground to graft the Birch Bark onto the avium or whatever rootstock, and then the one at the top to graft the 'Snow Goose' onto the Birch Bark. I find that very strange and not attractive.

The avium 'Plena' flowers are a bit smaller than I expected first time I saw them - not as large as 'Shirotae', and the sepals curl back the way avium species sepals generally do. They're also not out yet, though I saw just a few open flowers on them today in South Cambie on Heather (and now that I look, I see just a few on the one across the street from me). 'Shirotae' sepals are relatively large - maybe the largest ones I know, and are serrated. And the flowers should be fragrant.

These look like pretty 'Shirotae', not ruined by pruning.
